Two people were killed and two were injured in a multi-vehicle crash in San Luis Obispo on Wednesday evening.

Shortly before 9:30 p.m., mutiple callers reported the crash at the intersection of Beach and Pismo streets. Officers arrived to find the multi-vehicle collision and debris on Beach Street, spanning most of the block between Pismo and Buchon streets.

Officers determined three males were traveling in a vehicle southbound on Beach Street at a high rate of speed and did not stop at the stop sign at Beach and Pismo streets. Their vehicle struck another vehicle causing the speeding vehicle to overturn multiple times.

Darwin award. I hope the woman in the other car will recover with no lasting effects. How do you go that fast on Beach Street in the two blocks from where it ends at Marsh?
